I have a ‘love-hate’ relation with telephone, especially my mobile phone.
I am either talking in my phone or I am frantically looking for it all over the house. The searching is really wild if the phone is ringing, but the panic level is much much worse when its not ringing.
The only use for the landline is to help me locate the cellphone. Other than that, its just a piece of decoration!
My family always complain that I neither pick up or return their calls, but my point is that they call me only when I don’t have the phone with me or I can’t pick it up. Like my younger brother. His call comes the minute I enter the bathroom. If I decide to take bath at 9AM, then the call comes at 9AM sharp. If I go in at 12:30, then 12:30 is the time of call! How he does that, I have no idea! But its guaranteed to damage my ‘I won’t pick any calls’ image more.
Anyway, in the lost and found section, along with my cellphone, was a bread packet this morning. I had totally forgotten about it and decided to serve them this way before they go bad. This is my post for Blogging Marathon #21, under the ‘Upma Varieties’ theme. Check out the page for more themes and more recipes from other participating bloggers.
